Just as Long Island City’s residential boom approaches its peak, we’ve come across plans for a 10-story office and retail building at 30-20 Northern Boulevard, next to the elevated subway tracks and Sunnyside Yards.
It was back in May of 2014 that YIMBY brought you work of permits being filed for a 60-unit mixed-use development at 153 Remsen Street, between Clinton Street and Court Street in Brooklyn Heights. In July of 2015, we reported that excavation and piling work had begun. Since then the building has reached about four floors, as seen in photos from our friend Tectonic. We also have a better look at the design of the overall structure.
The proposal to renovate a commercial building in the NoHo Historic District didn’t fly with the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. The LPC rejected the proposal presented for 348 Lafayette Street, located on the southwest corner of Lafayette and Bond streets.
In December, Taconic Investment Partners and Cogswell-Lee Development Group acquired the ground-lease of 410 West 207th Street, in Inwood. According to Commercial Observer, the developers plan to redevelop the property into commercial-retail space. The site is currently occupied by a single-story, 34,000 square-foot vacant supermarket, formerly a Pathmark. The structure will be renovated to accommodate a new 20,000 square-foot supermarket and multiple smaller retailers. In addition, a 14,000 square-foot retail annex will be built on a section of the parking lot. When construction is completed later this year, parking will be reduced from 200 to 120 car spaces. The property can accommodate a 240,000 square-foot residential development with retail space, although plans for such proposal are not finalized. It sits a stone’s throw away from the 207th Street stop on the 1 train.
Bawabeh Brothers has filed applications for a single-story, 8,690 square-foot commercial-retail building at 71 Schenectady Avenue, in eastern Crown Heights, located four blocks from the Utica Avenue stop on the A and C trains. The 16-foot-tall structure will replace a vacant 62-foot-wide swath of land, and the leasable retail space will total 4,345 square feet. The retail tenant or tenants will also have access to storage space in the cellar. Brooklyn-based Felix Pustylnik is the applicant of record.
